Great Scott!

I am so sorry I've been away for so long! But I have some pretty sturdy excuses, if I may say so myself~ So I'll just spurt them out to you one by one :)

1. High School Pageant

It was last weekend, and for the first time I did a talent during the pageant. That will never happen again, trust me! It just added way too much stress to the whole thing! In fact, I was so nervous to sing in front of everyone (which is strange, since I perform in theater all the time and its never phased me before) that I completely forgot to take pictures of my opening number dress, talent outfit and gown. BUT! To make up for it, I compiled this mash-up of gown inspiration! These are the things I look for in a prom or pageant dress:

2. Auditions!!!

Yes, so my highschool drama department just happens to be doing my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE PLAY EVER. I mean, the show that I know every word and dance too by heart; the show that got me into theater in the first place; the show that has been with me since early childhood...and auditions were this week! So, as you can guess, I was too busy stressing to even dress cute all week! The cast list should be up next week, so I'll keep you updated :)

3. The Camera That Broke

(Scarf: Victoria Secret, Coat: Old Navy, Cardigan: Old Navy, Belt: Forever 21, Button Up: Old Navy, Jeans: Express, Jewerly: Steinmart)

So, as you can see, these are very bad pictures. That is because my camera died on me D:
Seriously- its gone. I'll have to buy a new one! In the mean time, I can use my moms but unfortunately its wasn't charged today...and I knew if I put off taking pictures any longer it would just never happen. So instead, you get these crappy web-cam ones! Yay :)

Oh, and one more thing, I thought I'd share some art with you all. I really only draw in my spare time now (which is like, never!) so I didn't work very hard on any of these...but I think they turned out decent :)

Wow, those dresses are beautiful! I'd love to have some kind of randomly elaborate dress in my closet. :D

@Rachel-- thats one of the reasons I started my school pageants! I really love ellaborate, pretty dresses. You just have to weed through all the typical plain dresses in the shops to find those rare, really beautiful gowns.
